Glue It Tuesday – a friendly recommendation

I have a recommendation: get a large inexpensive notebook, then cut and paste magazine photos to the pages.  I did this back in June with Kim Phillips Van Buren in her 21 Secrets workshop called “Jump in Puddles.”  It was during Exercise One: “get unstuck!”  I have to admit, I didn’t fill my whole notebook, but that’s something I can continue another day when I have the time and space to spread out again.  Anyway, these pages I now go to, when I don’t have anything specific in mind and I want to get started on a project.


 I found this baseball pitcher I liked and tore him out of my notebook.  Recently, I learned that baseball season was coming to an end and thought I could honor it in some way (and you thought this was football season!)  As I was preparing to glue the page into my art journal, I saw there was something on the back.  Oopps!  Change of plan!


So I taped the page in instead.  And decided to start my art project with this bright, cheery side rather than the baseball player.  First, I colored the page with markers.  Just so happened (doesn’t it always come about that way?) I was at an annual conference last week and the scheduling booklet was sitting on my desk.  The cover matched so well, I decided to tear off some pieces and glued them to my “bright, cheery” page.


To remind myself of where I had been, I glued on the title of the conference and wrote a little note in the bottom corner.   Voilà, it’s finished! 


Come and see what other gluing projects are going on through the linky tool at Aimee’s  Artsyville.

I love the bright colors you used. The baseball player is great, but this design is so much fun :)

Definitely like the sweet quilt much better than the baseball player! Funny how things turn out that way!

Isn't it funny that it's still baseball season? We don't watch it (we're football fans) but some of our friends do, and it's just the weirdest thing. I feel like it should have ended it a while ago!

Love the bright, cheery page! I used to cut pictures from magazines as a kid -- LONG before scrapbooking was cool. Now I Pin to Pinterest. But I might have to try the tactile version again.

The finished page is so much fun! I can't wait for the day when I have enough time to cut and paste things. =)

For some reason, I've been into pink lately so I am loving this journal page. Great idea about gluing mag pages in a book for future inspiration. Thank you for your lovely visit from git!
